jessica yellin is with us from d.c. jessica, is the obama administration saying anything about the graham and schumer plan as it starts to formulate here? >> hey, ted. they haven't commented on the plan so far this week, but graham and schumer are re-engaging on a proposal that those two senators first outlined in march of 2010, and the white house supported that r proposal then. that proposal has four specific components, not just tightening the bord, but the key component is a biometrics social security card so only those here legally can be hired. that is sort of can considered the key linchpin that could get a lot of republicans on board. also a path to legalization, a process for admitting temporary workers. it sort of is considered a framework for a comprehensive plan that the white house said they very much would like to get done for the president in the second term. >> what about the timing? why now? why is this being brought up after the election? there is exit polling that showed that majority of americans want something done on this. what is pushing this right now? >> well, a c

(child screaming underwater)... (underwater noises). >>> israeli forces have fired into syria after a syrian mortar shell lappnded in golan heights.
and months, it just doesn't wash, because if they knew all about this, why would the obama administration put general allen's name up for nomination, release a statement praising his service, schedule all these hearings, fly him here from afghanistan, only to have all this fall apart at the last minute. if they knew all these details, it just doesn't make a lot of sense. >> and why are they searching her home if, in fact, it's just about a sexual relationship between biographer and her subject. all right, chris lawrence, thank you. general john allen, of course, denying any wrongdoing as we've mentioned. nick paton walsh was recently on the ground with the troops in afghanistan. he's in beirut for us this morning. tell me a little bit about general john allen. i think that there's so many things that are so complicated about this story. so give us some insight into who he is and how he treats certainly the folks who, who served with him. >> very much respected career soldier. he became the head of u.s. forces in the nato campaign in afghanistan. a man with acute understanding of the problems
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben

the administration and with president obama. you didn't see a lot of people forming a circle around general petraeus and saying, look, he should continue in the job despite the scandal. >> the report in the journal indicates there was a lot of inner agency finger-pointing. >> that's right. over the time line that he released it, it was unexpected by other agencies. they weren't expecting him to do that. and then within the cia himself, he clashed with his own counter terrorism person over drone strikes. he wanted to align the strikes more with diplomatic efforts and the cia were after targets. and then on a smaller, but notable scale, he tends to schmooze with saw bored nets by going running with them. he would subject people come along on his athletic bouts. he runs a 6 to 7-minute mile. a few people at the cia could keep up. even these efforts by general petraeus to get to know people within the cia fell flat, and contentiousness under cut his relationships. >> and again, the "wall street journal" is reporting it sounded like general petraeus wanted to stay on. last monday he got a call from the h

[laughter] >> i mean, i don't even want to say what's next. there is stuff i have alluded to before. continuing the move very strongly. to fans regulatory policy changes -- to advance toward policy changes, at the executive order level and at the level of the agency's. there is so much written work that can be done there. i know like i sound like someone from d.c. but to make them real, we don't need to have legislation passed in congress and it is stuff i getting same- sex couples counted in the census. it would be great if we had everyone counted in all the federal service which exist. it does nothing megadeal in terms of changing people's lives -- seem like a big deal in terms of changing people's lives terrs. we have been in numbers and we can have a conversation because the federal government has not counted you any therefore do not exist. moving to the crockery have -- to the point wh
to 100 republic lawmakers have written to president obama saying the administration's response to the attack makes now u.n. ambassador unfit for a promotion. it comes after word got out that the white house is considering nominating her to replace secretary of state hillary clinton. just days after the deadly attack in libya. ambassador rice went on the five sunday talk shows and described it as spontaneous protest over that video that insulted islam. u.s. officials now say it was actually a planned tear attack. the now former cia director david petraeus reportedly told congress the administration knew right away it was a terror attack. but according to those who heard the closed door testimony last week j jen petraeus claims the administration changed official story to remove references to terrorism. as to who changed it, that's unclear. lawmakers from both political parties say they are working to figure that out. some republicans point the finger at the white house accusing the administration of a coverup though at this point we have no evidence of that. the white house says
administration and president obama is going to have a decision very much like the one president bush had in 2002. right now we need to step back and think creatively. are there other scenarios that we can work that can get a good result in iran? without leaving the president of the united states where he only has two choices? go to war, or accept a nuclear- powered iran. neither of those is attractive. now is the time to think of it -- think creatively about an acceptable outcome in iran and avoid the halcyon choice. >> are you concerned about is real? >> interesting, israel has a lot at stake, but they are also an independent decision maker. they have their own interest in this and have made it clear that they are not prepared to except without some of the military action iran with a clear path to a nuclear weapon. one scenario would be for the illustration to try to engage with the iranians diplomatically. with the other countries involved in the so called p five. offering a robust disclosure to the iranians if there regime will give up its nuclear program. to test them, to see if there is a d
is administration officials are already suggesting to congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass. >> new york state alone is estimated storm damage at $50 billion. that would make sandy the second most expensive storm in u.s. history after only katrina. >>> airline officials say more pilots are leaving the job and government rules require new pilots to have much more flight experience. >> this strikes me as a cynical effort on the part of some in the industry to cry wolf. >> look at what happened in the pit. things got a little hot at the nascar race. >>> nfl commissioner roger goodell said the high quality of hd tv is hurting the games because the experience of watching at home is so good. is it, though, say guys with wives? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. investigators want to know why it took so long to learn of the affair. >> another woman said she received threatening e-mails from petraeus's mystery. bob ohr is in washington. >> all this started a few months ago when a woman in tampa got harassing e-mails she turned over to the fbi. they were tracked
ryan is dismissing suggestions that president obama's victory gives his administration a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. returning to capitol hill yesterday for the first time since the election, ryan pointed the republicans keeping control of the house as a sign that the country isn't sold on the democrats' agenda. take a listen to this. >> whether the people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> you don't think there's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support rais
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organized to take opportunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator ginnie mae who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: obama u.n. ambassador susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. mike morrell on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> this was a spontaneous protest that evolved into something militant, that was the best information they said they had at the time. >> reporter: there had been earlier attacks in benghazi, a warning from ambassador chris stevens the day he died. house republicans hammered the administration reaction. >> the people back at state here in washington continued to deny additional security. and they continued to do away with security that was already there. >> reporter: democrats pushed back -- >> to lay this

. further more, we have seen blunder after blunder as the administration avoids responsibility and accountability. the delay tactics are unacceptable. >> democrats caution the colleagues about jumping to conclusions. >> barack obama was no more responsible for what happened in benghazi than george bush was for september 11. >> reporter: for the decision not to notify congressional leaders the c.i.a. director faced f.b.i. investigation over affair with the biographer paula broadwell. the attorney general said it was his call. >> there was not a threat to the national security. had we made the determination that they had a threat to national security existed we would of course made that known to the president and also to the appropriate members on the hill. >> reporter: some democrats said the sessions were constructed an put to rest reports comments by broadwell in late october that the c.i.a. annex in benghazi was attacked to free detainees. >> it's also information. i have no information it occurred whatsoever. that there were people being held. >> reporter: tomorrow, the form
on the outside, everything looks calm but behind closed doors, an administration in panic dealing with the petraeus sex scandal that threatens to spin out of control less than one week after president obama's re-election. big questions tonight. what did the white house know and when did it know it. the four-star general has said to be devastated about the scandal, sparked by his affair with his biographer, paula broadwell, uncovered during an fbi investigation. the bureau was looking into so-called jealous e-mails purchase reportedly send by broadwell to kelley, a petraeus family friend. tonight, the "washington post" has reported that as president obama rearranges his national security team, it is considering asking senator john kerry to serve on the team and the fbi agent was barred from taking part in the case for allegedly sending shirtless pictures of himself to a woman involved in the case. meanwhile, the ghost writer of broadwell's book, vernon loeb, says he was clueless about the affair between petraeus and broadwell. here with the latest on the scandal that keeps getting
-end tax cuts expire. what obama had been campaigning on and what voters want overwhelmingly. so you know, the administration has actually been fairly optimistic about where boehner is and negotiating with boehner and negotiating maybe with some of the rank and file who are more likely to come to an agreement. maybe go into the senate. and doing this very publicly. they're meeting with a lot of groups with labor groups, with business groups and they've learned their lesson. this idea that in 2011 last year, they could just sit in a room with boehner, hatch out a deal and all would be done. clearly didn't work out very well. after the election, i think the president feels he has a mandate on these issues. if it doesn't work out, it is a great opportunity for him to go use the pulpit, travel the country, sell the ideas and apply public pressure to boehner to give a bit. >> bill: yeah. can we say hello here to sir calling from fort worth, texas. good morning. >> caller: good morning, mr. press. how do youing? >> b
presidential administration. guess what, now he says he never said he was firing anybody if obama got elected and that the media twisted what he meant. carol? >> so strange. >> blame it on the media. aren't we easy targets? >> yeah, but we can take it. we're big girls. alison kosik, thank you. >>> another follow-up to a story we first brought you yesterday kind of about the same -- it is about the same thing. new york franchise owner of several applebee's restaurants who says he may have to issue a hiring freeze to afford the costs associated with obamacare. mike archer says, quote, recent public comments by one of applebee's franchise owners about the possible implications of the obamacare on jobs with his individual company were not the views or opinions of either applebee's or other franchisees. although we respect his right to speak freely as an american. don't rely know how obamacare will affect things. just have to wait and see. >> one general resigns. another general is the focus of questionable e-mails. will he be the next to step down? we use this board to compare car insurance rates
that obama was unaware of the investigation but also the culture in washington where trusted officials are behaving badly. all this is placing a lot of pressure on the president's team. not only will the administration need a new c.i.a. director, they'll also need to replace hillary clinton as circumstance of state and -- as secretary of state and there is talk of bringing in senator john kerry as secretary of defense. some conservatives are criticizing that decision, calling it an odd choice and saying he would do better as secretary of state. for that job though, the president is considering u.n. ambassador susan rice. g.o.p. strategist see this as a chance to re-examine the administration's handling of the attacks in benghazi. senior republican aide who spokane onomously to the "new york times" called rice the poster child for the idea of a white house cover-up. >>> the senate rarely rejects a cabinet pick but this could be a long and painful process ahead of president obama. more bill press is coming up after the brea
